{400 square feet of style}


Flipping through a few magazines last week over a morning coffee, and completely fell {along with everyone else} for Rita Konig‘s West Village apartment as featured in the current issue of Domino. There is so much warmth and style wrapped up in 400 beautiful sqare feet, and the family & friends polaroid display above the fireplace mantel is such a wonderfully fun and creative idea.
